The project GEOMETRY OF BALANCE involves the construction of a structure outside the Palace Oittan Kartano, from the location of 64 persons in a concentric way. In it I will trace with elastics threads a plot that them will join one one, to create a geometric volumetry across the tension and balance.
GEOMETRY OF BALANCE is the construction of a system that across the balance, is established as a machine that necessarily needs the other one to exist . It is also to place the bodies as joints for the possible organic movement between component parts. It is an apparent harmony between the reality and the Utopia, between the earthly thing and the pure geometry.GEOMETRY OF BALANCE suggests that: tension is balance and vice versa.
Is interesting to carry out this work in the context of Aalto Camp for Societal Innovation ACSI, due to the fact that different cultures and societies are constantly, consciously or unconsciously facing, to live in community. All the approached topics are related –in some way- to the interaction between people from the need to share with other one until the need to depend on the other one.
